Two consecutive movies hit the street, the box office and word of mouth are both low, Zhou Dongyu really does not carry the box office
On September 18, the theatrical movie "Parrot Kill" was released for 4 days, with a cumulative box office of 24.293 million yuan, and as of 4 p.m., the film's single-day box office was only 1.154 million yuan. According to the current box office trend, the final box office result of "Parrot Kill" may not exceed 40 million yuan.
This "Parrot Killing" starring Zhou Dongyu was expected by fans as a trumpet "All or Nothing" before its theatrical release. Because "Parrot Kill" is also a fraud theme, its story synopsis is clearly marked that this story is a collection of materials from many women's "pig killing plates". Because it is a fraud and anti-fraud theme, "Parrot Killing" has high hopes from a large number of fans, hoping that it can reproduce the commercial sense of "All or Nothing".
However, this group of fans was disappointed. Zhou Dongyu's "Parrot Killing" is not dedicated to fraud and anti-fraud, but to the love story between the heroine and two scam boys. This "Parrot Kill" was ridiculed by fans who have already watched the movie as "Burning Winter" version 2.0. In Zhou Dongyu's last movie "Burning Winter", it is also a love story between the female protagonist and the two male protagonists.
The final box office of the movie "Burning Winter" was only 26.0039 million yuan. Regarding the low box office of "Burning Winter", many fan-type viewers explained that "Burning Winter" is a literary and artistic film work, and the high box office is a strange thing. However, the data on the other side seems to have effectively slapped the face of "Burning Winter" as a literary film. The Douban fan rating of the movie "Burning Winter" is only 6.1 points. Isn't it more embarrassing for a literary film starring a well-known female protagonist to only get a passing score?
Embarrassing, never the only one. Next, the "Parrot Killing" starring Zhou Dongyu is also very embarrassing in terms of fan ratings, as of now, the film has only 6.3 points on Douban. There are also fans who have already watched the movie to give a very vicious evaluation: a movie with an anti-pig killing plate has itself become a pig killing plate, wasting fans' money and time. Obviously, these negatives directly point to Zhou Dongyu himself, because a large number of fans buy tickets to enter, which is to go to Zhou Dongyu.
If a movie hit the street, the box office is not good, or the reputation is not good, it should be regarded as an accidental phenomenon. If there are successive movies with box office and word-of-mouth on the street, then the starring side should really reflect on it - why does such a thing always appear? In other words, does Zhou Dongyu really not carry the box office?
On this issue, I have a superficial personal opinion, any star, actor, do not easily tout their own box office, what really carries the box office is the commercial attribute value of theatrical films, not the so-called traffic value of actors. Movies with high box office are not necessarily of high quality, but its commercial attributes are certainly good and cater to a large number of fans.
Therefore, for the question of whether Zhou Dongyu carries the box office, we may as well directly bring in another new question, as far as films of the quality of "Burning Winter" and "Parrot Kill" are concerned, can the box office be higher than now by replacing Zhou Dongyu and changing any other actress to star? To put it bluntly, replace Zhou Dongyu, for films of the quality of "Burning Winter" and "Parrot Killing", there may not even be a chance to go to theaters, so let's talk about the box office, and the possibility of zero box office is greater.
Based on this, my view is that Zhou Dongyu can still carry a little box office, but not much. Any actor can't carry much box office. Now, when many "movie pig-killing plates" fool retail investors, they use which star carries the box office to fool things. Remember that what really carries the box office must be the theme and commercial attributes themselves, not the actors.
For Zhou Dongyu, does she know what it means to her that "Burning Winter" and "Parrot Kill" have hit the street at the box office and word of mouth? When filming, I estimated that Zhou Dongyu did not think that these two works would hit the street at the box office and word of mouth. The box office will not be too good, Zhou Dongyu should be able to expect it, but the reputation is also so bad, which should be unexpected by Zhou Dongyu.
She took on these two movies, and she should have gone for word of mouth. However, the final result is that the reputation of these two movies is not good, which directly corrupts the popularity and reputation that the actors have accumulated, especially the trust of fans. In the future, even if Zhou Dongyu shoots commercial blockbusters, or real high-reputation literary films, a large number of fans will be discouraged from buying tickets because of the shadows of "Burning Winter" and "Parrot Killing".
Zhou Dongyu, who wants to go to the next level in his career, seems eager to shoot some films with clear literary and artistic attributes to prove himself at more international film festivals. Zhou Dongyu wanted to become Gong Li and Zhang Ziyi. However, Zhou Dongyu temporarily looked at it, except for director Zhang Yimou, he really did not cooperate with a really top director, and he did not encounter a top script.
Her actions in "Burning Winter" and "Parrot Killing" are more like trial and error after trial and error of Gong Li and Zhang Ziyi in a hurry. The two senior sisters in front met a good script and a good director, Zhou Dongyu, born at an opportune time, did not meet. As the saying goes, the time and place are favorable to people, and one is indispensable. (Text/Ma Qingyun)
